M2

—^ ry > 0.10 ry, for solid rectangular and box sections

in which, Fy is the specified minimum yield stress of the compression flange, M1/M2 is the ratio of smaller to larger moment within the unbraced length, taken as positive ifthe moments cause reverse curvature and negative if the moments cause single curvature, and ry is the radius of gyration about the minor axis.

• The beam is not made of high-strength steel.

• The beam is continuous over the supports (i.e., not cantilevered).
